Gettin’ the Car Washed

At the car wash

Originally uploaded by tbridge.

One of the things I grew to depend on was the frequent rainstorms in the late summer and early fall, but with a drought in progress, it’s hard to get the grime off without hitting the carwash and either paying something like $15 to get it done nicely, or paying $5 for a creaky gas station carwash, where things may go awry.

There seems to be little middle ground in terms of a good wash that doesn’t cost a ton of money. I know some of the downtown area parking garages offer detailing service, but how do you know which ones to trust? I felt good doing it at my office in Columbia Square, but not so much the office on Thomas Circle. While I’m sure Wayan would rather the only Cars we dealt with be the work of front man Ric Ocasik (whom I recently learned married Paulina Poriskova! How the hell did THAT happen?!), the rest of us who can’t rely on mass transit need a place to wash up.

Where are you getting your car washed?
